Windows:
Go fullscreen and take a screenshot using Print Screen function on keyboard. If you have two monitors, do Alt+Print Screen so it takes a screen of only the active window.

Once you have the screen saved on the computer, open Paint and paste the pic in there and upload the file to Imgur

Mac OS X:
Since Mac is beautiful, you won't have to do all those steps. All you need to do is press Command+Shift+3 and that saves a file to the desktop. Simply go to Imgur and upload the file

For windows hit windows key, type snip, hit enter, select the area you want, click the copy button, hit ctrl v on imgur.com. No saving to computer.

This picture shows that it is beginning to make it's mark on the skyline, rising above the surrounding towers.

I love this building's simple design. Sometimes simplicity makes a bigger impact than flashiness.

They really need to fix the cams. No 59th street for several days is getting annoying and the 53rd street cam needs repositioning.This really should happen tomorrow.

This thing is still a POS. I hope that the exposed concrete just stains and rots over the years. What an absolute atrocity.

It's funny just how much this annoys the classicists.
And they can't do anything about it

I think that i slowly understand why Vinoly designed this tower the way he did. And not fancy or flashy ala current trend.

I have nothing against the form. In fact, I rather like the slender shape. Rather it is the exposed concrete that I detest. Concrete was a failure 50 years ago at the height of brutalism and it is a failure today.

432 Park Ave would have become an instant classic had it been cladded with zinc or aluminum panels or some other composite. Now its ugly face will age worse than an Australian sun worshiper.

Possibly my favourite photo of this building taken to date!

thanks Stig! I dropped my phone in a puddle one day and my iphone camera quality hasn't really been the same. #pissed

At lease my phone works perfectly other than that and i had to buy a new battery for $80.

Keep going! The cranes are almost fully visible over the neighboring buildings to the west from further down 57th street.

This tower is pretty visible from Jersey when North towards the G.W. Easy to see as long as its South of you.

Does anyone wonder if the box may be there to give the building an "entrance" on Park (thus, justifying the address)?
There's definitely a LOT of mechanical equipment in the upper floors of the structure, but it's not yet possible to see the lower levels - or, more importantly, how it connects to the main tower.
I've been wondering about this, and it seems to be a real possibility.
